25 Burpees
15 American Kettlebell Swings
250 Row

Men use 32 kg. Kettlebell.
Women use 24 kg. Kettlebell

  1. Row at a near-maximal pace. Pick up pace that you will not drop off by more than 3 to 5 seconds on the second row
  2. Thus far, our most successful athlete picked a row pace for his first row that was 85% of his row pace for the 7 x 500m Row (1:25 today, 1:40 last week). He fought tooth and nail to only slow down by 4 total seconds on his second row. 
  3. This is a Burpee workout. Do them as fast as possible, but be sure to do them right. You need to show air below your feet, but they do not specify you need to extend your ankle joint. 
  4. You need to clap your hands above your head but you do not need to specifically extend your arms.  
  5. You must touch your chest and hips to the ground and fully open your hips at the top of the burpee.  
  6. Do not waste any time floating in the air.  
  7. If your chest, shoulders, and triceps are not on fire by rep 12, then you're not going fast enough. 
  8. For the the KBs, you must get the handle vertical, or perpendicular to the ground.
  9. Go out of your way to pull the kettle bell down each rep, and do not excessively squat or lean over. 
  10. This workout is like Fran, the margins will be small and even your transitions will have to be intentionally fast. Every second counts.
